Earlier it was reported that the name of Manaforth was revealed in documents of the "black bookkeeping" of the Party of Regions , investigated by NABU.

Recall that on May 31, People's Deputy Sergei Leshchenko (BPP) and journalists Sevgil Musayev-Borovik and Anton Marchuk published , in their words, part of the documents on the "black bookkeeping" of the Party of Regions for the second half of 2012. According to published materials, the PR spent 66 million dollars in political corruption during this period. The documents also included the American lobbyist and political technologist Paul Manaforth, who was forced to leave the US presidential contender Donald Trump because of the scandal with the "black bookkeeping".

Later, People's Deputy of Ukraine Sergey Leshchenko in the article "Manaforth and Yanukovych laundered money through Kyrgyzstan" said that the "Party of Regions" paid for the services of political technician Paul Manaforth using offshore jurisdictions and banks of dubious reputation.

Granting lethal weapons to Ukraine being actively discussed, US Special Envoy to Ukraine Volker says

Granting lethal weapons to Ukraine being actively discussed, US Special Envoy to Ukraine Volker says



U.S. Envoy on Ukraine Conflict Kurt Volker said Saturday in Kyiv that the release of the Crimean Tatar activists by the Russian authorities might indicate Moscow’s willingness to make steps in resolving the conflict in Ukraine’s east.

This was reported by Censor.NET citing the Voice of America.

Volker said meeting with Akhtem Chiygoz and Ilmi Umerov that their release was a minor positive signal.

Earlier, the U.S. Special Envoy to Ukraine held talks with Kremlin representative Vladislav Surkov describing the meeting as constructive but showing no tangible results. The U.S. official said they were trying to understand whether it was possible to find a common ground on how peacekeepers could be used to resolve the conflict.

He believes this step can be effective only if peacekeepers are endowed with broad powers and will be able to operate throughout the region.

Volker also accused Russia of supporting the ongoing conflict in the Donbas, noting however that Moscow started realizing that the continuation of the aggressive policy in the eastern Ukraine was at odds the Kremlin's interests.

He also said that the United States was actively discussing the possibility of providing Kyiv with military equipment and lethal weapons for protection of its territory.

The U.S. official says the issue is not as controversial as it may seem since the Ukrainian authorities require these weapons solely for the country's defense.

Earlier, Umerov and Chiygoz were released by Russia and extradited from Crimea to Turkey.

In 2016, FSB investigators initiated a criminal case against Crimean Tatar, deputy head of Mejlis and participant of Crimean Tatars national liberation movement Ilmi Umerov. He is charged with public calls to violate the territorial integrity of Russia.

Umerov's detention, search and the criminal case, and his keeping in psychiatric hospital and pushing through forced psychiatric expertise stirred global response.

Simferopol city court controlled by the Kremlin started hearing the case against Umerov on June 7, 2017. Umerov believes his case is politically charged.

On Sept. 11, the Supreme Court of Russia-occupied Crimea sentenced Chiygoz to eight years in prison.

On Aug. 2, 2016 Russian-controlled Supreme Court of Crimea started to consider materially "the case of Feb. 26" against Akhtem Chiygoz. Earlier, on July 20, 2016, during hearing in camera, the court divided "the case of Feb. 26" into two separate cases: one against Akhtem Chiygoz and another against the rest of the defendants.

After Crimea was occupied by Russia, Kremlin puppets started trials against Crimean Tatar activists who participated in protests in support of Ukraine's territorial integrity. The events took place on Feb. 26, 2014. According to occupant authorities, two protesters were killed in a stampede, 79 people received injuries. Those detained in connection with the case - Akhtem Chiygoz, Ali Asanov, and Mustafa Degermendzhy - were named political prisoners by Russian Memorial human rights center.
